Baby Blue Tamari Build

Postby Dan » Wed Oct 17, 2012 10:58 pm

Some of you may be familiar with the 56cm Tamari I picked up at the meet on Sunday. Mulger Bill has a detailed Tamari thread, so I won't repeat historical details. Think erle may have one, too?

56 square - gipiemme dropouts F&R - included gipiemme BB also. 1950g frame, 650g fork for 2600g total - lightest frameset I've had. Over bracket cable routing - stamped 7777 on underside of the bracket, along with 56 for sizing, along with a mystery 616 thrown in for good measure.

Image

8 speed Campagnolo Mirage group - eBay, but a forum member :)
Stronglight heasdset (donated kindly by the Europa I bought a few weeks ago)
New veloce bottom bracket
32h frankenwheelset - campag rear, 600 tricolour FH for the time being.

after this afternoon's hour and a half session:

Bars and seatpost to come - most likely 3ttt Competizione or Deda Speciale. First foray into 27.2 territory, so need to source a post. Also need to source a 60mm stem - I run a short stem/short reach setup.

Saddle most likely a white Selle Italia XR I have floating about, until I finally order a brooks team professional - Munga, we really need to do that. Dark grey tape and black cable outers, I'd say.

It looks good so far and sounds like it is going to be a nice riding bike when it is finished.

I think I have the darker grey, but yes, let's have a look. Nice to know you have shortish stems, too!

Thanks Gary. My bet is it rides better than the Viner :|

Nice colour too. Great looking bike. Had never heard of Tamari as a bike only as a Soy Sauce :)

The only thing i don't like is that it shows me up to be lso lazy. You guys whip these up in a weekend, but i sit there thinking about what bits to put on what bike, etc, etc. I've just gotta get in the shed and do it.

There was a period of weeks compiling parts that preceded this - even still, I don't yet have everything I need. It just happened that the frame was clean and the BB came out really easily. The viner was a much dirtier build - or perhaps I'm becoming more efficient.

Anyway, I might borrow the saddle from the single speed (selle italia skippy edition) as the white is a bit too light against the blue.

Yeah, I was looking at that frame at Pushies and on Sunday. Would have liked to have it if it was 2cm smaller. Nice blue.

I sure did but sold it recently... sigh. Funnily enough, my partner has a frame from John Mildenhall cycles which I thought was a nice coincidence.

Here's my old Tamari:

I love the blue on yours, Diggerdan.

Update,

Had a hub swap happen, so have just rebuilt the temporary front wheel until such time as I can piece together a proper wheelset, gods of the ebayze be kind. Interim headset has arrived too, but am waiting on a campag number from canadromangaria or somewhere.

I'll guess 9.6kg David - 32h wheels will keep it up there, as will leather saddle.

Have only weighed frame and fork thus far - 2600g together.

10.5kg taped up and ready to roll. That's the price one pays for an oldish, lower end group and 32h wheels. Looking forward to raturday though!

Shiteie, its hard to keep up with your builds... youve taken to this retro crap with gusto and with speeeed.

im embarrassed by my my low spec garage crap..........
